Personalization has been a key trend in fashion for quite some time now, and it looks like it’s just going to get stronger in the near future. In retail, a lot of stores these days are offering DIY services as part of a new way to interact with their consumers.

In line with this fashion phenomenon, we’ve noticed that many stores and online retailers are stocking up on quirky patches, which add a touch of fun to both clothing and accessories. While some of them can be sewn on permanently, there are also stick-on options which can be easily peeled off, like Kitsch’s new line of patch sticks.

According to Kitsch, these products are made with vegan leather with sticker backs, and come in designs like letters, signs and cutesy imagery. There’s no need to iron or sew them–just peel and stick, and you’re good to go. And go again.

It seems that you can use these patches with almost everything–from denim jackets to cellphone cases and even handbags. The stick-on, peel-off features also allow you to easily switch up designs without causing nasty marks on your belongings.

Retail: $8 to $9
